© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 1 Forecasting Using the Simple Linear Regression Model and Correlation

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 2 What is a forecast? Using a statistical method on past data to predict the future. Using experience, judgment and surveys to predict the future.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 3 Why forecast? to enhance planning. to force thinking about the future. to fit corporate strategy to future conditions. to coordinate departments to the same future. to reduce corporate costs.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 4 Kinds of Forecasts Causal forecasts are when changes in a variable (Y) you wish to predict are caused by changes in other variables (X's). Time series forecasts are when changes in a variable (Y) are predicted based on prior values of itself (Y). Regression can provide both kinds of forecasts.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 6 Types of Relationships Relationship NOT Linear No Relationship (continued)

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 7 Relationships If the relationship is not linear, the forecaster often has to use math transformations to make the relationship linear.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 8 Correlation Analysis Correlation measures the strength of the linear relationship between variables. It can be used to find the best predictor variables. It does not assure that there is a causal relationship between the variables.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 9 The Correlation Coefficient Ranges between -1 and 1. The Closer to -1, The Stronger Is The Negative Linear Relationship. The Closer to 1, The Stronger Is The Positive Linear Relationship. The Closer to 0, The Weaker Is Any Linear Relationship.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 12 The Scatter Diagram Is used to visualize the relationship and to assess its linearity. The scatter diagram can also be used to identify outliers.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 13 Regression Analysis Regression Analysis can be used to model causality and make predictions. Terminology: The variable to be predicted is called the dependent or response variable. The variables used in the prediction model are called independent, explanatory or predictor variables.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 14 Simple Linear Regression Model The relationship between variables is described by a linear function. A change of one variable causes the other variable to change.

Sample data for 7 stores were obtained.

Chap. 9 - 22 Interpreting the Results Y i = 1636.415 +1.487X i The slope of 1.487 means that each increase of one unit in X, we predict the average of Y to increase by an estimated 1.487 units. The model estimates that for each increase of 1 square foot in the size of the store, the expected annual sales are predicted to increase by \$1487. 

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 35 Linear Regression Assumptions 1.X is linearly related to Y. 2.The variance is constant for each value of Y (Homoscedasticity). 3. The Residual Error is Normally Distributed. 4.If the data is over time, then the errors must be independent.

© 2000 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap. 9 - 38 Residual Analysis for Independence: The Durbin-Watson Statistic It is used when data is collected over time. It detects autocorrelation; that is, the residuals in one time period are related to residuals in another timeperiod. It measures violation of independence assumption. Calculate D and compare it to the value in Table E.8.
